the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) currently ranks indoor air pollution as one of the top threats to public health?
We spend as much as 90% of our lives indoors. This increased exposure to indoor air pollution has been directly linked to the increases in allergic reactions as well as other sicknesses and fatigue.
VOCS - VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS
VOCs are organic chemical compounds that vaporize and enter the atmosphere. VOCs are often used in paint, carpet backing, plastics, and cosmetics.
VOC CHEMICAL EMISSIONS INCLUDE
Formaldehyde
Xylene/Tolune
Alcohols
Ammonia
 
The EPA's Total Exposure Assessment Methodology (TEAM) study found levels of about a dozen common organic pollutants to be two to five times higher inside homes than outside. This pollution stems from VOCs emitted from an array of products found in our homes and offices.

Over the past 25 years, changes in our lifestyle and in the composition of construction materials and furnishings have led to a dramatic increase in VOCs. And as a result, terms like Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) and Building Related Illness (BRI) have become commonplace.
